christie, the former governor in new jersey. , whitman. the republican party has drifted away from the party of business, free ente enterprise, and we've become the party of skulls, the pair of no, you can't have an abortion. no, if you're gay, you can't be married. no, if you're an immigrant, you can't possibly think you're going to get on line to become a citizen of the united states. i think we have to go back to the party that existed when i was an idealstic law student in brooklyn or as i began my career as a straight reporter in new york -- a street reporter in new york and new jersey. we've got to go back to the party of inclusion, the big tent republican party where we say to the democrats listen. we're not, you know, forfeiting the black vote to you just automatically or the latino vote or the asian vote. those are people who are among our striefers, those are people who are energetic, vibrant. they want the best for theps and their families. i want to reach out to all the people of the very diverse state of new jersey and say the republican party is more than the cliche t

, where they're doing extremely well in the states. many are popular, people like chris christie, very popular, bobby jindal, popular in his state. susana martinez, republican in her state. these are ones who made themselves popular because they have to govern, be executives, propose policies, they can't just sit on the sidelines and throw bombs at democrats, it is hard to do anything else, that has been the republican's tactic, but at the state level they prove that they can be constructive. and probably it is the case if the future of the republican party doesn't come from super pacs, doesn't come from think tanks, doesn't come from the feuds they're talking about. it comes from leadership bubbling out of the states and compelling candidates running at the national level and proving by their example that they have a message. >> dave, is anybody playing this from the other side? you have a kind of clustering of chris christie and jindal and ryan and rubio. they're doing something similar, not moving the policy, but a way of talking about the politics. is anybody running side by side t
